12th Annual Rainbow Book Fair

April 20 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

RSVP encouraged

The Rainbow Book Fair is back! For our 12th Fair, the theme is “Count Us In!” We’ll be facing crucial Presidential and Congressional elections in 2024, and too often LGBT people have been counted out as a political and cultural force. This year, we’re saying Count Us In! As usual, we’ll be spotlighting major queer writers as our Featured Readers, as well as panels that address the crucial issues that we’re dealing with. From LGBT politics to queer literature for kids and young adults to radical performance art, we’ll be facing some hot-button issues head-on!

AND… don’t forget our annual Drag Story Hour, a celebration of gender fabulousness for children of all ages.

PLUS, we’ll be hosting the Come Hear! poetry marathon and a wide roster of short readings in every genre.

ABOUT RAINBOW BOOK FAIR

The Rainbow Book Fair is the largest LGBTQ+ book event in the US. It is totally unique—there is no other book fair quite like it. At the RBF, the people who write, read, publish, and sell our books are taken seriously, but with a lot of queer humor and love thrown in.

Our books run the entire span of LGBTQ+ literature, from scholarly and serious to campy and zany, from books for young readers to “adult” books (and we are sure you know what they are!) The important thing is that if you read and love LGBT+ writing, we want you here on April 20, 2024 at the LGBT Center, 208 West 13th Street, in Greenwich Village, New York, NY, from 12 noon until 6 PM. And we hope you feel as enthused and excited about this long-awaited RBF as we are.
